The Learning Never Stops
Regardless of your industry, continuing to learn is one of the keys to success. Tyler is pursuing more business knowledge through a program called E-Seed, which is offered through The Venture Center at Fox Valley Technical College. While the program is designed for people just contemplating starting a business, the concept and skills discussed are useful for business owners at any level.
Programs and classes like E-Seed are offered all over the country and are designed to help people determine whether or not they should consider entrepreneurship as a possible career path, or to help existing business owners determine the practical next steps for their businesses.
Purely Poultry has enjoyed increasing success in the last year, and is growing. By taking this class and others like it, Tyler will learn new methods of doing business that will insure we make the experience of doing business with us an enjoyable one.
If you have ever thought about starting your own business or considered taking a class like E-Seed, we would encourage you to do so. To give you an idea of what kinds of things the class covers, here is the “60 Second Elevator Pitch” about Purely Poultry that Tyler was required to write as homework:
Purely Poultry sells baby chicks and poultry books to people who keep backyard flocks. Raising poultry gives people access to the freshest possible food and that’s appealing. As more people get into raising poultry, there is a greater demand for both the birds, and books to learn more about how to take care of them.
There are so many different kinds of poultry that it can be confusing – especially for a beginner – to find and order the right birds. I have relationships with NPIP certified breeders all over the country and bring the strengths of each one of them to one convenient website. Purelypoultry.com makes finding AND ordering birds easy. To help my customers feel more comfortable with ordering chicks, I offer a live arrival guarantee.
I’ve always raised baby chicks, for as long as I can remember. Before Purely Poultry, I owned Danke Bros Poultry, begun in my parents basement. I go to poultry shows and teach workshops to further my experience.
In your dealings with business owners have you found that education seems to make a difference? Do you believe that a more educated business owner provides better customer service?
